Well i was just wondering who all has lost a car they once enjoyed in an accident. Post up some before and after pics if you got em. heres mine







I bought her senior year as my first vehicle on a loan. I also had a '92 Mercury Cougar. I wasn't exactly the popular kid but EVREYONE knew me as "The Kid w/the Badass Purple Truck". It was awesome I drove her for about 1 1/2years then I got the job im at now and within the first month working there i was on my way home when I was hit by a Semi. And this was the outcome:





The insurance totaled her out. I held on to her for the past 3 years with hopes to rebuild her but i dropped the idea and this past fall I finally sold most of the parts off her and scraped her.

Nice truck, too bad about it though...




my 96 XJ. 2.5L 5-speed, RWD, with 167,000 miles. I got it from my older bro my freshman year of college. It was a cali car and was clean as hell. I would work on it a lot just to keep it running but didn't mod it b/c I didn't have cash then...

then my bro borrowed it and rear-ended someone, totaling it... To be honest, I'd kinda rather have that car than my sebring now... well I dunno...
great car and I miss it.

Whipple at 12psi is not the same as an M90 at 12psi.

I'd go into further detail, but I cant explain it without it being confusing. :run:
